Chinese hackers have taken up cyber arms and followed up widespread anti-Japan protests in the People's Republic over a set of disputed islands by attacking at least 19 Japanese government and other web sites.

Japan's National Police Agency (NPA) revealed that 11 of the 19 sites, including those of the Defence Ministry and Internal Affairs and Communications Ministry, appeared to have been hit by Distributed Denial of Service attacks, Kyodo reported.
